Protecting Your Data from the Dont_Worry Ransomware

Ransomware Trojans like the Dont_Worry Ransomware can be removed with the help of a malware removal program that is fully up-to-date. However, the files encrypted by the attack will not be recoverable without the decryption key, which the cybercrooks hold in their possession. Malware researchers, as always, are against payments to these threats, though, since it is very unlikely that the cybercrooks will help victims recover their files. Instead, computer users should use backup copies of their files to restore any data lost in the attack. In fact, having backup copies of your files on secured places is the single most effective measure that computer users can take to ensure that their data is safe from threats like the Dont_Worry Ransomware, which rely on taking the victims' data hostage through the use of encryption algorithms.
